Firefighters respond to carbon monoxide alarmJanuary 9, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Ireland Volunteer Fire Department responded late Monday night when a carbon monoxide detector activated in a home just west of Jasper.
Firefighters responding at 11:43 p.m. to the Ken and Anne Brosmer residence at 4024 W. Shiloh Road did not find any furnace or appliance issues with a multi-gas detector; however, the detector did activate on the main floor where the fireplace was located, according to Fire Chief Stan Seifert.
It was thought the fireplace damper had been closed too quickly, temporarily emitting carbon monoxide in the home.
There were no further problems after doors and windows had been opened to air out the residence, according to Seifert.
One truck and 12 firefighters were on the scene 35 minutes.
